Summary

My areas of research are focused in:

  • The advanced applications of imaging and other technology in radiation oncology.
  • The application of imaging technology throughout the treatment process.
  • Integration of imaging modalities for treatment planning
  • Short- and long-term treatment followup, as well as treatment verification.

These quality assurance intensive procedures are driving the need for accurate, efficient quantitative, automated tools for performing patient specific quality assurance for complex treatment like IMRT.

Specifically, the use of image guidance for localization, verification and for dosimetry in routine treatment and IMRT. Methods to optimize the treatment planning and delivery process that will allow higher doses to be delivered to better-defined target volumes and spare normal critical structures.

Development of viable light and heavy particle therapy models for potential clinical use and the implementation of clinical particle beam therapy.
